The assessment reports of RPI and CPI

Simon Briscoe made this Freedom of Information request to UK Statistics Authority

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

Response to this request is long overdue. By law, under all circumstances, UK Statistics Authority should have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear UK Statistics Authority,

Assessment report no 79 on inflation figures, published December 2010, concluded: "... the statistics are readily accessible, produced according to sound methods and managed impartially and objectively in the public interest".

Yet Assessment report 246, March 2013, marked a turning point: the RPI ceased to be favourably viewed.

Please supply me all the documents seen by the assessment team as part of each review. Where documents are on line and available to see, please supply just the link.

Yours faithfully,

Simon Briscoe
